Are You Missing Teeth?
Losing a tooth will immediately decrease your life quality by making it difficult to chew and you may also feel embarrassed because of the empty space between other teeth. In many cases, those who are missing teeth also suffer from impaired speech abilities and a changing facial structure. It is common for many people who are missing teeth to turn to temporary dental restorations such as crown and bridge work or partial fixed dentures, but there are other, more permanent solutions available. Dental implants may be your best option if you are missing one or more teeth.
Single Dental Implants
Single implants are a great option for people who are missing a single tooth in an area. The procedure works by fusing a titanium screw into healthy jawbone tissue and attaching a prosthetic tooth to restore a natural appearance and chewing function.
What If I Am Missing Multiple Teeth?
The All-On-4 dental implant method is the best tooth replacement option for people who have a healthy jawbone and are missing many or all of their teeth throughout their mouth.
How the All-On-4 Method Works
The All-On-4 tooth replacement method works through large sets of prosthetic teeth being implanted in each area of the mouth using 4 carefully placed screws per section. This process begins with advanced imaging techniques to find the best areas to implant the titanium screws in a lower or upper quarter of the jaw. Once the treatment plan has been set, the patient goes through surgery to have the 4 screws implanted into the jawbone. Finally, the large sections of prosthetic teeth are usually immediately loaded onto the implants, resulting in a permanent solution to replace missing teeth.
